Halacha - Glass gift
Submitted by anonymous  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh
Question:
Answer: If you mean that you received the glass as a gift; yes, you must toivel it. If it is "your" company and you are the giver; there is no need to toivel them even before giving them to Jewish employees. If fact, if one toivels a gift before he gives it, there opinions in the Poskim that it does not work and the recipient must re-toivel the object.

Halacha - Touching Packaged raw meat on Shabbos
Submitted by anonymous  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh
Question:
Answer:

While ideally you should have put the chicken in the fridge before Shabbos, you were permitted to do what you did.

Generally it is true that inedible foods are muktza, and this should include raw meat. However, Shulchan Aruch rules that raw meat is not muktza, as some chew it raw. Mishna Berura discuses whether this only applies to soft poultry or even to red meat, but clearly accepts that fowl is not muktza. However, HaRav Shlomo Zalman Auerbach zatzal, quoted in Shmiras Shabbos k'Hilchaso, states that today no one eats any raw meat including poultry, and it is all muktza. Despite this, in a case where significant financial loss is at risk, even Rav Auerbach is lenient.

Halacha - Not so frum parents and birthdays
Submitted by Adi Salama  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh
Question:
Answer: According to Halacha, there is no significance in a birthday or anniversary. However if your parents want i celebrated, it is an excellent opportunity to show hakaras hatov for everything they have done. Since the date itself has no halachic significance, it is irrelevant if the Jewish or secular date is observed.

Halacha - chometz
Submitted by shmuel  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh
Question:
Answer: The Rema 434:2 writes that Kal Chamira should be recited after the burning in order to fulfil the Mitzva of burning chometz he owns. So apparently we assume that one does NOT intend to make his chometz ownerless when throwing it into the fire.

Halacha - Drinking Under The Age.
Submitted by Yossel  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh
Question:
Answer:

There is no prohibition in Halacha for a minor to consume alcohol, other than the imperative to preserve one's health. If it is physically difficult for him, he may certainly use grape juice.

Generally, secular law provides an exemption for religious usage, and one is not violating the law.

Halacha - Dairy Bread
Submitted by anonymous  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh
Question:
Answer: First of all, many opinions hold that only true bread products have this limitation, and not crackers that are mezonos. Additionally, sometimes these products are not truly dairy, for example Thomas English Muffins have less than 1/60 dairy ingredients. Your best bet is to contact the Hashgacha thst supervises the to inquire.
